Objective: This study aims to cultivate students' comprehensive understanding and grasp of curriculum knowledge, example as pharmaceutical separation engineering course. Materials and Methods: The case teaching model was explored in this paper. Taking the "extraction of penicillin" as an example, case teaching is designed and organized. After that, 1-4 Study Questions are put forward to guide and inspire students’ broad thinking and improve their innovative ability. Results: Through case teaching, students not only learn to consult technical data, but also learn to design several effective separation and purification methods and process routes according to the property of penicillin, and the established process routes were analyzed and compared, so that the feasible, economical and optimal technology is found. Students' engineering ability and innovation ability can be improved and overall concept and consciousness can be cultivated. Conclusion: This teaching model is really student-centered and provides an effective way to cultivate high-quality, innovative and practical pharmaceutical engineering talents.
